Rainy Days and Mondays

Worried
Henry: (whimper) "Weatherperson's calling for rain. We'll get soaked. Drenched! This is terrible!" (whimper)



Umbrella
Zachary: "Now I just push this thingie and then you pull and... there!"



Rain Days and Mondays
Zachary: "Better?"
Henry: "You're the best Uncle Zachary."



Rain Days and Mondays
Zachary: "That old weather isn't going to get us all wet."
Henry: "Not a drop."

Rain Days and Mondays



(After all that, I don't have the heart to tell them it's only a slight chance of rain.)

… for more rain, as a few more weeks like this and they'll start saying the "D" word on local TV.

… they won't get wet when it happens.

Dog logic.

Did You Know…


Feb 5 is National Weatherperson's Day, which, according to Wikipedia:

"… is a holiday observed on February 5 primarily in the United States. It recognizes individuals in the fields of meteorology, weather forecasting and broadcast meteorology, as well as volunteer storm spotters and observers. It is observed on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the United States' first weather observers who took daily measurements from 1774 to 1816."

Who knew?

Behind the Scenes


I just this weekend realized that my Speedlight fits nicely onto my old aluminum tripod. Only took me thirteen months to think of it. (D'oh!)

So..

UP went the umbrella on it's CFL stand.

UP went the Speedlight on the old tripod.

Then I tilted the tripod head to point the Speedlight down a bit and ta-da! Instant high lighting.

Yeah.

Thirteen.

(sigh)

This is another set where I don't know how you picked a favorite! I love what you did with the shots, and using the old tripod is pretty clever, no matter how long it took you to think of it! :)

Better late than never! We've heard the D word here in Tulsa off and on for the last year. Here's hoping we both get rain! And no wet dog smell. ;)

The tongue in the last photo was priceless! Wish we could send some rain your way. It rains here a LOT, so Sage is quite used to it.
